Two men from Birmingham who have pleaded guilty to terrorism offences today spent eight months in Syria fighting against the country’s regime.

Childhood friends Mohammed Nahin Ahmed and Yusuf Zubair Sarwar, both 22, from the Handsworth area of Birmingham, spent eight months in the war-torn country last year after contacting Islamic extremists from the UK.
